Where are we going?

Why, to the North Pole of course!

Come and join us on our train ride. What a magical night!

Do you hear the ringing of the bell?
Do you truly believe?

Excitement is in the air! Students have been reading Caldecott award books in the media center. Mrs. Inhelder our media specialist read The Polar Express to the students. Students are checking out the book a day at a time, so they all get to take it home and read it with parents. Thanks Mrs. Inhelder!

I bought the book and CD above to use during our train ride at school.
It is pretty good with sound effects to go along with the story.
Many students have seen the movie and report that it is fantastic!
